About the lecture:
爱发棋牌官网We explore the amazing scientific discoveries on the 爱发棋牌官网 and development of the Universe. A fascinating process with a very humble and simple origin, where a handful of fundamental building blocks get together following simple rules, but always driven by chaotic initial conditions and sometimes catastrophic events along inconceivable long periods of time. We learn how all life is formed by the same basic chemical structures and how the entire humankind had a common origin; that we all are part of a single human family, living in a fragile paradise. At this point, we confront the tragic contradictions created by our powerful society and feel the need of invoking and learning from ancestral wisdom and prophecies, if humanity is going to survive in the long term.
